Benchmade 176 SOCP

Pure fighting knife designs seem a little goofy to me but this is a great idea. If you are going to market a "fighter," packaging it with a perfect replica trainer, compatible with your sheath etc. seems like a natural.

Include the trainer or dont. Charging half again for the ducky seems a bit much.

yar...I guess the karambit fad is gonna be tough to fade away...as fighters, there are plenty of less costly options with a trainer counterpart, but I haven't heard of a deal that includes both. I like my CRKT Hissatsu, cheap mofo built with a single purpose in mind, and throws like a charm.

most "pure fighters" including karambits are functionally useless IMHO. You just can't carry one without coming across like this guy:

I just wish there were more trainers available of commonly used blades that people actually carry. $50 is a little steep for a dull painted knife blank. I'll just make my own.
